I haven't made this yet, but I love great fish & chips! This recipe comes from Barry C. Parsons. Here's what was said: After years of his experimenting he perfected his homemade version of fish and chips by using part rice flour in the batter recipe for a guaranteed crunch. You can find it at:

How to Make Super Crispy Fish and Chips

Step-by-Step

  1. To prepare the fish batter:
    Combine dry ingredients.
  2. Add the egg and soda water & whisk together just until the liquid is incorporated. Small lumps in the batter are not a problem.
  3. Cut the fish into about 8 pieces. Season the fish with salt & pepper on both sides.
  4. Dredge the fish pieces in additional rice flour to help the batter stick to the fillets. Dip the pieces into the batter & carefully drop them into deep fryer filled with oil & preheated to 375* F.
  5. Fry a few minutes, about 5 is fine depending on the thickness of the fillets; just until golden brown on both sides. Drain on a wire rack placed over a cookie sheet. Serve immediately.
  6. If you have to fry the fish in more than one batch at a time, hold the fish in a 200* F oven on the draining rack to provide air circulation all the way around the fried fish pieces to prevent from getting soggy.
  7. LIME & CAPER TARTER SAUCE
    Stir ingredients together until blended well.
    Let sit in fridge for an hour or more to let the flavor meld before serving with the fish.
